After shutting down his hometown of Torooto with his second annual OVO Fest concert (Featuring Rick Ross & The Weeknd), Drizzy Drake spoke to MuchMusic on a surprise guest from his upcoming sophomore release, Take Care (Aug. 24).

“Stevie Wonder is a very close friend of mine. I’m honored to call him a friend, someone who embraced me very early in this music business,” he said. “This is an exclusive right here, because it’s MuchMusic, and we’re Canadian: Stevie Wonder is actually on ‘Take Care.’”

According to Drake, Wonder has been highly involved in the making of his new album.

“He helped me out with a lot of the music, just came and sat with me, listened to my music, told me where I could add a couple things to make it more sonically appealing, and not only that but we actually are writing together, which is an incredible experience.”

“So I hit him, asked him to come by, and with no hesitation he hit me back like “I will be there.” Not only that, but he was supposed to do two songs and he did like six,” Drake said. “It was incredible.”
